Italy is fantastic.

That being said, now that I am in Italy, the intense, unrelenting yearning that motivated my posts on this blog has been at last fulfilled.  And consequently, my motivation to post has been slightly diminished.

You have to admit, it is less attractive to write about your favorite country than it is to live in it and embrace it in each moment.

Also, I’m not sure what to say.  Because there is so much to say.  And, at the same time, so little that needs to be said at all.

Being back has been an overwhelming emotional experience filled with only highs and no lows.

Here’s a few photos of my journey so far:

    Horsemeat? You must be kidding. First of all, it’s not kosher. Did it taste like chicken?
